was katrina. when the american people thought that the administration was not properly handling katrina. this so me is potentially much more serious and much more devastating because not only is it -- it is either total incompetentence or worse so i don't know which you want to call it. say that they were totally incompetent and didn't know what it was and one person wasn't speaking to the other all the way up to the president or they frankly were covering it up and i don't know frankly how you want to categorize it but either way i think there are a lot of unanswered questions and i want to commend senator isakson. one of the most responsible and serious members of congress in the u.s. senate. i want to commend him for once again seriously trying to get to the bottom of this. this is a serious issue. american people deserve answers and by the way, the families of these slain american heros deserve for the president and for the administration to speak to them straightforward and let them know what is going on and what has happened and right now they are not getting that as well. >> than
victims of hurricane katrina. cnn reported the event at the time, but the conservative website called "daily caller" is out with the full version of the speech, saying it's an exclusive videotape. we did cover this when it happened. that conservative website is arguing that it is evidence of president obama, then senator obama, whipping up race hatred. for more on this story and how it's -- how did this 5-year-old tape that did get mainstream media coverage end up resurfacing now as some sort of exclusive showing something that we apparently had all never seen before? >> well, ashleigh, it's a political year. this tape plays very well to the republican base. it's being billed on the right as obama's other race speech, so at a time when some suggest a republican challenger doesn't seem to be getting much traction, the one thing we know what works is dredging up anti-obama sentiments to get the base fired up. now, yes, this is clearly old news. it was well covered five years ago. the other thing that a democratic and a republican strategist have both pointed out to me is as an opportuni

to show you the now president obama is speaking about hurricane katrina and claims the victims of that storm were ignored by the government but the circumstance was different for 9-11. >> down in new orleans where they still have not rebuilt 20 months later there is a federal law when you get reconstruction money from the federal government called the stanford act. basically it says, when you get federal money you have got to give a 10 percent match. the local government has to come up with 10 percent. here's the facts. when 9-11 happened in new york city, they waived the stafford act, said this is too serious a problem, we can't expect new york city to rebuild on test own. forget the dollar you have to put in. that's the right thing to do. what's happening in new orleans? where is your dollar? where is your stafford act money? makes no sense. tells me the bullet hasn't been taken out. tells me somehow the people down in new orleans they don't care about as much. >> as we mentioned earlier the daily caller obtained the video. fox news contributor and chief of the web site carls

have been barack -- equivalent for barack obama of george bush's flying over katrina moment. >> but nothing was said at all. and nothing will be said. >> with us now is mr. caddell. so you think this is an organized press suppression of this story? >> well, organized -- whether it's organized is a straight conspiracy, everyone is in on it and doing it and it's a purposeful conscious effort to suppress news that might help obama. we have gone down a slippery slope here. look, bill, we have had liberal bias or bias in the press for a long time. for many years. but it's gotten worse starting in 2008. now we have a press that actively engages in the re-election. putting out a narrative that romney is a loser, you know running polls, they are using like telling n.i.v. adding on romney. romney is not my issue here. not only decide to support obama on this issue the last two weeks, what we see is a press that has decided that it will not tell the american people the truth. not only tell people oho they may or may not vote for but now telling people what truth they may know and what
blind, but that they clearly had dealt with the reaction to katrina wrongly, which any number of national polls said that most citizens felt, so i mean, if this is the best they've got, then i think the president's in great shape. >> so, the other tape that's getting a lot of attention, the "huffington post" releasing video of paul ryan talking about a quote, moral tipping point, in the united states, six months before the 47% comments. take a look. >> the good news is survey after survey, poll after poll, still shows that we are a center right 70-30 country. 70% of americans want the american dream. they believe the american idea. only 30% want the welfare state. >> all right, so he at least gives credit to 17% more people than mitt romney did, but how damminging is that f in to have the same mentality, considering there's a minority portion that would rather get welfare checks than jobs? >> i think whether it's condemning or not is defining because it shows that both the presidential and vice presidential candidates and the republican party have the same attitude that there'

back in 2007, about victims of hurricane katrina. first, let's listen to the clip. >> contains some of the most divisive class warfare and racially charged rhetoric ever used by barack obama. >> people asked me whether race was the reason response was so slow. i said this administration was color-blind in its incompetence. but -- but, everyone here knows that the disaster and the poverty happened long before the hurricane hit. >> now, nbc and several other media outlets also covered this speech back in 2007. so mollet, what did your listeners have to say on this? >> in large part, they said, who thought this was a good idea. and they're saying it actually could backfire for the conservatives here, because if a republican could fail, as was perceived back then, george bush, failed people who were most in need, goes back to the 47% comment, the undecided voters, middle class, those people who have admitted today they've needed government assistance, if a republican could fail those people, then possibly we might not want to take a chance again on a republican, when the country is in s

then warned of a quote, quiet riot building in the african-american community in the wake of hurricane katrina and other factors which he said the bush administration was neglecting. as we said, this tape isn't new, only part of it is out there, and the hyping of it may have as much to do with politics and little to do with content. we'll see. more is supposed to be released later tonight. joining us, paul begala who advises the leading pro-obama super pac and gloria borger. also, the founder of your black world.com and eric erickson. paul, what's your reaction to all this? >> you know, a long time ago, a veteran journalist by the name of john king was with the associated press and i was complaining about something they weren't covering. he pointed out they had already covered it. he wrote the word news on his notepad, and covered up the s. it's a five-year-old speech, cnn covered it five years ago. maybe it's shocking. it turns out, i follow this more closely maybe than the right wing blogs, our president is african-american and he belonged to reverend wright's church in chicago. i just don't
made some comments about resources, he made some comments about federal response to katrina. i mean, it's just a damp squid and i don't think that -- i think if you look at most of the media today, outside of the one that chose to highlight that particular story, not many people are paying it much attention because it is really frankly not worth much attention. what's new about it? you tell me, tamron. >> nothing new about it. i thought you were going to compare to al capone's vault, a big television special here in the states. >> no, no, hitler's die ritz were better. hitler's diaries were better.are better. hitler's diaries were better. urge i have to switch you around to congressman ryan's tape the "huffington post" revealed where he is talking about 70% of american public want the american dream while 30% want welfare and look to welfare this is being compared to romney's 47% comment. is that a fair camp pairson there? >> well, i think you have to give mitt romney and paul ryan a great deem of credit. they are consistently ar r lyco matically wrong. they can't decide how much of the
response to katrina, which many other people have given. we also see an attempt to use reverend wright to attack the president, which has failed before, but because it's failed before doesn't mean we shouldn't try it once again. stepping back, we see hannity and tucker carlson critiquing the president's accent and his tone of voice. so we have two white men who don't know the president talking about how he should speak, how a black person should speak in public, especially when they are talking to other black people, which is a really disgusting part of this whole thing and tleepsd this whole attempt to try to portray him, once again, as a scary black man who is really out for black people. he is ultimately malcolm x, that is who he is, we see him behind closed doors, which is entirely untrue. the country doesn't believe that at all. joan walsh picked up on this part of it today earlier in her piece of salon. this is the most rancid racial fear mongering i've seen in a long time. that's all this really is. >> i was gonna let toure keep going there, we were talking about salon, my polic
. . host: laura is a republican. hi, laura, you are on. caller: i wanted to say to katrina, if you want to talk about common sense policies, maybe you need to listen to rush limbaugh and maybe you need to really listen to what mr. romney said about this economy. if you are concerned about poverty, do you know that the number one group tracked in poverty is single thing all households -- single female soul? you need to look at stuff that the conservatives are saying because they care about the portrait they don't want people trapped in poverty. they know what small businesses, which employs 60-70% of the citizens and in this country, taxed more. if you tax small business, they are not going to hire. i don't know how you don't figure out what mr. romney so eloquently said in that debate. talking about politics of the 1% or the 47%, conservatives want the best for all folks, and yes, we mean thewe don't want them trapped in poverty. we want them married, paying their taxes -- host: we will get katrina vanden heuvel's response. guest: yeah. listen, if marriage will promote the well-being of

the reaction to hurricane katrina and the inadequate reaction to hurricane ka treena. it's an interesting strategy by mitt romney and his allies that they want to defend the bush administration response. >> it sounds like you're saying -- >> it's a weird strategy. >> it sounds like you're saying -- >> i'm not saying mitt romney is responsible or the romney campaign is responsible. i do think it's allies to that campaign and they have the responsibility to stand up and say it was wrong. >> stephanie cutter, while she was talking, she had a spanish language reporter next to her. can you hear that noise? there was a plane flying by and a chopper over her head. so, thank you, stephanie, for dealing with those distractions as well. >> and it's cold out. >> and it's freezing cold. going to warm up, though. cnn, of course, will have complete coverage of tonight's debate that starts at 7:00 pm eastern right here on cnn and cnn.com. >>> john berman has other stories making news. >>> american airlines going to inspect 47 of its boeing 757s after seats came loose in flight on two of its planes withi
his pastor. he compared the response to katrina to the 9/11 attacks and florida. bill: what are they saying about the video surfacing now? >> reporter: the obama campaign says it was open to press coverage and was covered extensively at the time. they blame mitt romney and his allies. the only thing wrong about this is we should -- they call these desperate attacks. bill: we are going to talk to ben lebolt later in the hour. their is enormous pressure on both sides. bret baier is the anchor of special report. the cohost of tonight's special debate coverage on the fox news channel. here is the figure. what you are hear being how this speech plays into tonight's debate if at all. >> reporter: here on the ground's not factoring in as far as the debate prep, as far as being a factor in the debate. it's not believed to be a question. it's probably not going to be something that's brought up by one of the two candidates. is it setting the table? is it what some people are talking about? i'm standing on a platform with a lot of different media and everybody next to me talking about

of the war in iraq, afghanistan, and the dismal response to the federal government to hurricane katrina, and the conditions that allowed the financial crisis of 2008 to happen, on and on. it is a long list. a few months ago, a cnn poll found bush is the least popular living ex-president. somehow he still gets better favorable ratings than the republican that wants to be our next president. here is the question. what does it mean for mitt romney if he's less popular than george w. bush? that can't good-bye. go to cnn.com/caffertyfile and post your comment on my blog. or go to our post on the situation room's facebook page. >> can't be good, indeed. thanks very much for that. lisa sylvester is monitoring some of the other top stories in "the situation room." including very ominous signs coming in from iraq. >> last month was the deadest in iraq in the last two years. 365 people lost their lives to the violence that still plague it is country. half of the victims were civilians. the other half soldiers and police. baghdad's government blames blood said on sunni insurgents with ties to al q
crowd about the bush administration's failed response to hurricane katrina. republicans are highly critical saying it shows the president appealing to racial solidarity. they are touting it as a newly uncovered clip. this was already reported on in 2007 when it happened and much of that reporting came from the very same news organizations who today are calling this new video. the obama campaign said it's a desperate attempt to shift the conversation away from romney's 47% remark and obama spokesman ben leebolt said if the republicans are going for this sort of attack at the debate tonight, they are in for a surprise. more coming up after the break. stay with us. you're about to watch an ad message created by a current tv viewer for capella university. matter. education is the key. it is the vehicle. it's the way in which we evolve. every journey is different every possibility is unique. but the beginning, the beginning is my craft. i'm an ordinary person striving to achieve extraordinary things. it started with a dream and i'm on my way there. hershey's drops. a lot of hershey's ha
among other things of the government's response to hurricane katrina. >> when hurricane andrew struck in florida, people said, look at this devastation. we don't expect you to come up with your own money. here. here's the money to rebuild. we're not going to wait for you to scratch it together. because you're part of the american family. what's happening down in new orleans? where's your dollar? where's your stafford act money? it makes no sense. it tells me the bullet hasn't been taken out. it tells me that somehow the people down in new orleans, they don't care about as much. >> so at the same time yesterday, there was another video posted on the huffington post showing congressman paul ryan speaking in november of 2011 about ten months ago about a moral tipping point in the united states. that was six months before mitt romney's 47% remarks. >> before too long, we could become a society we were never, ever intended to be. we could become a society where the net majority of americans are takers, not makers. today, 70% of americans get more benefits from the federal government in dol

president obamab talking about race, the reverend wright and hurricane katrina. what are voters telling you? are these videos resonating? >> these voters are so worn down not only from the primary here in the state of new hampshire but over the past several months with the attack ads, back and forth, i don't know that they recognize either of the candidates if they weren't in slow motion in black and white. at the end of the day, i think what the voters are looking for is unless it's an extremely radical video, showing something -- even the 47% video which seemed to resonate with a lot of the country, that wasn't as big of a deal here in new hampshire. what people are looking for is what their solution is for jobs, the economy and things that are more substantive than viral videos unless it's, as i said, something really extreme. >> we'll look forward to some answers, honest answers. paul westcott, thank you. -[ taste buds ] donuts, donuts! -who are these guys? -oh, that's just my buds. -bacon. -my taste buds. -[ taste buds ] donuts. how about we try this new kind of fiber one cereal? you t
response to the katrina disaster in new orleans, he did say that black people were frustrated living in the inner cities, not having any hope. none of which is inflammatory as the daily caller and sean hannity seem to think. >> maybe it is desperation as some critics are saying. the timing is key. to be fair, howard, this video tactic is being deployed by the other side as well. we pulled out this clip. this has popped up on the huffington post. >> gthe good news is survey aftr survey, poll after poll still shows that we are a center right 70/30 country. 70% of americans want the american dream. they believe in the american idea. only 30% want the welfare state. >> so, again, just context for our viewers that was paul ryan, this is a speech from last november. the whole speech has been on youtube since last fall. so my question to you, howie kurtz, are there really substantive points to be scored here by drudging up these all videos? >> there can be. i don't have any problem with it, people on either side drudging up old videos. it helps if the video you're drudging up has never been
